On April 25, the Westfield Board of Education unanimously appointed Enrique Pincay as Supervisor of World Languages and ELL (English Language Learners), effective August 1, 2017. Mr. Pincay currently holds that position in the Hillsborough Township Public Schools, a school district with nine schools and 7,500 students.
His new responsibilities will include establishing curriculum objectives, acting as a resource for teachers, evaluating teachers and students, and modeling continuing professional growth and learning.
A graduate of Kean University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Bilingual Education, Mr. Pincay achieved a Master of Arts from Rutgers University in Teaching Methodology and Best Practices. He also holds a supervisor certificate issued by the state of New Jersey.
In recommending Pincay to the Westfield Board of Education, Superintendent Margaret Dolan said, “With 11 years of experience as a supervisor, nine years as a teacher and two years as a bilingual/ESL consultant, Mr. Pincay comes to us highly qualified.”
“Equally impressive were the highly positive comments from his colleagues during our district’s site visit,” added Dr. Dolan.
Paul Pineiro, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction, stated, “Mr. Pincay is a great fit for our schools and will contribute positively to Westfield’s tradition of excellence.”
Mr. Pincay fills the position of former Westfield Public Schools Supervisor of World Languages, David Greer, who enthusiastically endorsed Pincay’s appointment. Following a temporary assignment last year with the NJ Department of Education, Dr. Greer recently accepted a senior position as Director, Office of Academics in the NJDOE. Mr. Robert Roth, who has been a World Languages Supervisor in the Westfield Public Schools for 36 years, returned in an interim role which will conclude at the end of the 2016-2017 school year when Mr. Pincay joins the district.
